Thomas Terry Sr. started Terry Tree Service in Rochester, NY in 1938 in the post-Depression era. Tom knew his customers wanted good quality work for their hard-earned dollars and that’s what he supplied. From residential to commercial tree pruning, removal, planting – you name it – Tom’s goal was to provide the services people needed. Tom initiated contracting for the local City of Rochester electric utility, which is a service that continues to this day, two generations later.
Duke, as he was affectionately known, entered his father’s tree business like a whirlwind. To fill the requirements of electric companies looking for expert tree service to maintain their assets, Duke acquired a small company with seven employees and grew it to a formidable force of thousands of tree workers. Eventually, combining with Tom’s existing company, the Terry family created one of the largest tree companies in the United States.
Tommy and Tim were Duke’s right-hand men until 1995 when they became business partners, purchasing the company. Terry Tree Service has since grown exponentially, offering an ever-expanding list of services. We’ve been listed on Rochester Business Journal’s Top 100 Fastest-Growing Business list on numerous occasions, reaching the #1 spot in 2013-14.
